Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club

  3 Reviews

Invited here to Golf Club for an outing by a friend and never even heard of the place until yesterday.  Arrived to a gated community which contains the Golf CC tennis & Yacht club.  Large Mediterranean style clubhouse very nicely appointed with beautiful amenities inside.  

Driving Range was poor that was narrow had rubber mats only and is short and only permissible to hit irons.

Course itself is quite narrow, gimmicky and very short for a Florida Design with both the greens and the fairways using paspalum grass which may be easy to maintain but is a bitch to play out of.  

Course extremely well manicured with heavy rough but even though the ball sits up, very difficult to play out of due to the way your club head will turn at impact.  

Nicely laid out with some interesting character though many holes short.

THE REAL disappointing item here was the greens.  Although absolutely perfectly manicured perhaps that it was an outing or that it was Monday they were so slow it was like putting on heavy astro turf.  NO good putter could putt these greens entirely too slow I would not even make them a 6 on the Stimpmeter.

Dinner in the dining room after assuming prepared by the facility was quite good.  

Service was very good all through the property and I won a 4some anytime before May 2015 in the raffles.  I was told that they property greens are usually faster so will update next time I play, but can't understand why they were so slow.

All and all enjoyable track, nice people and nice clubhouse but greens and driving range left something to desired

Absolutely beautiful place. The facilities are gorgeous and the club is very welcoming. I can't wait to return and have lunch or dinner! The menu is appetizing and when matched by great weather, eating here must be truly a winner.

By far, the toughest private golf course in South Florida. Recently regrassed in 2007, Deering Bay's Arnold Palmer designed course features bayfront views surrounded by rare wildlife and mangrove forests. After golf, members and their guests can sample the cuisine of award winning Chef Greg McDaniel in the charming clubhouse.  They have an organic garden for the use of the dining room and collaborated with 4th graders from Temple Beth Am to teach them about organic farming in South Florida.
